Deep Percolation Loss per + ko + lay + shun

Deep percolation loss is the amount of water that is lost, or goes deeper underground, than do the roots of a crop being irrigated. When the water is this deep underground it does not help the crop. Deep percolation loss happens when the soil has lots of small rocks and sand in it or where too much water was used.
